Impact Stories

Houstonians are problem solvers.
Progress seekers. Impact makers.
From born and raised to new arrivals, the faster the world changes the more they’re at their best. For over 50 years, they’ve inspired us to grow right alongside them. To build relationships with them. Young and old. Business leaders and job seekers. Strivers from every corner of the world.

We talk about their goals and what they need to get there. Then we innovate. We experiment with new courses and resources. We break down barriers and challenge preconceptions. We find better ways to bring the benefits of higher education to every student, wherever they are—at home, on the job and in the community.

So no matter where they hail from, they can make their impact. And we can make ours. We’re the Glasscock School. And this is how our students and faculty are impacting Houston for the better.

Impact isn’t measured in numbers alone, but in lives changed. See how together with our students, we’re making an impact on our community.
